Dun Mountain Trail open for Christmas

12.12.15  Great news, especially for all the holiday visitors to Nelson!
It's been a difficult situation for NCC staff - this logging couldn't be delayed as once the Brook Sanctuary fence was completed, it would have been even more challenging to get these trees out. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, but it's another example of that period in time 20-30 years ago where plantation pine was thrown at many sites that would be considered inappropriate to plant these days due to other, and arguably more important demands for the use and protection of the land.
